The Crown in Nayland

Crown Inn Nayland

Privately owned village inn, in a lovely old Suffolk building

The menu changes every five weeks and they embrace seasonally available produce. They have a bar, restaurant and terrace, all of which are very comfy. Extensive wine list and cask ales, including the traditional Suffolk favourite Adnams

The food is superb at the Crown and they are open for breakfast, lunch and supper

Well worth a visit. A firm fave with our guests at Woodfarm

The Butt & Oyster in Pin Mill

Butt & Oyster

One of the best known pubs in Suffolk and a firm favourite with Woodfarm guests

Famed for great Adnams beers, fabulous home cooked food and the most stunning location right on the river Orwell

A proper old riverside pub with bare oak floorboards, pints pulled straight from the keg and the smells wafting from the kitchen. This place is popular with locals and visitors alike and in the summer is heaving outside giving it a great atmosphere

A great place to visit when in Suffolk and just a stones throw from the Suffolk Food Hall (see our separate post)

Anchor in Stoke by Nayland

Anchor Stoke by Nayland

A traditional country inn and restaurant nestled in the beautiful Stour Valley

Nayland is a picturesque little village perched on the banks of the River Stour. It enjoys stunning views across the river and the beautiful countryside that is fondly known as ‘Constable Country’ thanks to the work of painter, John Constable

I’ve arrived at the Anchor on more than one occasion in my Kayak as it’s very easy to pull up at the bank and wander in for a pint or lunch

Suffolk Food Hall

Suffolk Food Hall

Probably the most ambitious retail and restaurant project that any farm in the UK has undertaken!

That’s what the National Farm Shop Association said in 2013. And they’re not wrong! This really is an amazing place to shop for food, homewares, kitchen ware, garden and plants

Not far from Jimmy’s Farm so a nice little day out to visit both, Suffolk Food Hall is a fantastic destination for all foodies. There are loads of artisan suppliers of food and drink and you can now try much of it out in their fabulous restaurant overlooking the River Orwell and bridge

Sorrel Horse in Barham

Sorrell Horse

Homely dog-friendly pub with huge garden – great for kids

A family run freehouse for the last 25 years; it’s a traditional old listed building, just a short drive from Woodfarm in the village of Barham. They are dog-friendly and family friendly

They serve traditional English pub food and have a large garden as I said, with a large childrens play area. Full a la carte menu with a home made specials board, which changes daily

A stones throw from the A14 too

Southwold

Southwold Pier

Southwold is arguably the jewel in the crown of Suffolk’s heritage coast as far as visitors to our great county are concerned

Home of the Adnams brewery, famous lighthouse and beach huts. Splendid art galleries, fine shops and pubs and the Blackshore harbourside for extremely fresh fish and the ferry across the River Blyth to Walberswick (see our separate post on Walberswick)

Jam packed with great pubs, restaurants, coffee shops, shops and a fabulous beach and pier, with some quirky old things to see and do!
